Objective sleep estimation by polysomnography - from speculations to clinical implication

Abstract: The state of sleep is a difficult subject to study. The fact of observation and the environment by itself lead to a disruption of its natural progression. Some pathological phenomena, such as seizures, do not occur every night, which also limits the implication of the objective sleep data in clinical practice. However, for certain disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea, REM sleep behavior disorder, bruxism, overnight polysomnography supports the diagnosis with high confidence. This is also true for some phenotypes of insomnia. The report presents examples of identification and confirmation of some pathological conditions in humans, in which the ability to objectively verify different features of sleep plays a key role.
